Why then did they not show us the other side , or would that have raised the price even more ?

That's what I get for not perusing the Feather River Trains site . I was unaware of this series . C&O fans must be tickled pink .

Point taken. Sorta like that special Mexican boxcar they ran not too long ago that probably never left home rails.

OK, I reviewed the full May MT offering over on N Scale Supply, and came up MT! (empty) ;)

My wallet is grateful!

(However I saw that Athearn is offering up the 2893 covered hoppers in N&W 1960s scheme - I hope they don't screw it up like they did on the 1950s scheme in the 1st run ::) )

Eh...

MTL isn't really "doing it" for me anymore.  Thank God for Atlas.

No different than 99.9% of the buyers for the Daylight or Broadway limited.

MT did save me a lot of work on those NP GS Gons.  Just a quick renumber into the 51000 series and a steel slab load and I got another car off the list.
